SunWiz is pleased to announce a new Top Solar Retailer Award category: the Local Solar Hero.

SunWiz Local Solar Hero Awards

The Local Solar Hero awards reward solar retailers for their efforts, even if they’re not atop the national or state league table. The awards recognise the retailers that have installed the most capacity in each of 88 regions spanning Australia’s population centres. 

Award-Winning Outcomes

You may be eligible for one or more Local Solar Hero awards. Award winners can benefit from considerable marketing and sales advantages, including trophy, certificate, badge, award ceremony photos & videos, endorsement videos, and more.


  1. Eligibility: Fill in the form below, then send SunWiz a report showing the size, date, and postcode of each of your installations in 2023, and demonstrate how the report was generated. The report can originate from an STC agent, CRM, accounting software, or solar proposal software.
    • Formbay clients can participate without sending SunWiz a Formbay report. Simply fill in this form and Formbay will include your data in its verification step (see below). None of your data will be sent to SunWiz (this will be ranking verification only).
  2. AssessmentAssist SunWiz in assessing your claim’s authenticity, whether by confirmation from your STC agent, accountant, or by producing the report while screensharing with SunWiz.
    • Formbay clients simply need to fill in this form. Formbay will advise SunWiz of your position in each region in the Verification step. 
  3. Compilation: SunWiz will compile all the submitted and assessed claims for verification.
  4. Verification: To ensure this isn’t just a “best of those who participated” award, SunWiz will verify the status of each local solar hero in conjunction with SPV verification service provider Formbay. SunWiz will send Formbay de-identified claimed kW in each region, which Formbay will compare to SPV records that cover more than two-thirds of installations. Note Formbay is prohibited from sharing retailer identity with SunWiz. SunWiz will also evaluate share-of-locality using Clean Energy Regulator postcode data to ensure sufficient coverage.
  5. AwardsSunWiz will notify Local Solar Heroes of their award eligibility and invite award winners to the Awards Ceremony held at the Smart Energy Conference. 

To Participate

You will only be eligible if you send verifiable information to SunWiz. To get started, fill in the form below. 

If you use Formbay for STCs

If you’re a Formbay STC client, fill in the form below. Make sure you fill in the same trading name you use in Formbay.

Formbay will incorporate your data into the verification, and advise SunWiz of your standing.

Do NOT request data from Formbay. 

If you don't use Formbay for STCs

If you’re not a Formbay STC client, fill in the form below. You’ll need to provide demonstration of your claims using a report that  originates from an STC agent, CRM, accounting software, or solar proposal software. You’ll also need to assist SunWiz to verify the accuracy of the report.
